Random Poem:

flowers
mwalkerd

steel caps on your stunted knees
 1
useless shins with folded feet
 2
trailing behind your stumbling
 3
half-steps on barely thighs
 4
 
 
stiff curls on your rigid hands
 5
thumbs extended, wrist stuck
 6
dead rakes through soil
 7
dusting walk with rock-swept flesh
 8
 
 
geriatric latissima and shoulders
 9
built up from many yards
 10
for stubborn money made
 11
to honestly support yourself
 12
 
 
now foetal around your top-tube
 13
as you start your bike moving
 14
one-sided tires worn thin
 15
from faithfully supporting your self
 16
 
 
you found yourself a purpose
 17
though life gave you no reason
 18
did you press against insistence?
 19
or are you just deaf as well?
